Bogus caller alert!

The De Beauvoir Safer Neighbourhood Team (i.e., our local police), who are very nice, and look like this:


have asked us to publicise the following:

There have been two attempts made to gain entry to houses in the Englefield Road area of  De Beauvoir, by a man claiming to be a police officer in plain clothes.

The man is of Asian appearance and aged between 30-40. 

On each occasion he knocked on the door and produced what he claims to be a police warrant card. This has been described as a metal crest with the words "police" emblazoned on it.

This is actually what a warrant card looks like:  

If you are in any doubt as to the authenticity of a police officer who calls at your home please call 999 immediately.

Kind Regards,

The De Beauvoir Safer Neighbourhoods Team
